A morning in the life of a working mom ...

Lately, it seems like every day is a little different around here, but a typical morning for this working mom looks something like this ...

5:30 We start to hear the baby making poop sounds over the monitor. Lovely. At least it’s 5:30 today and not 5:08. Or 4:39.

5:45 Alarm goes off, and I get up if I haven’t already been up to change a diaper. Then I stumble through my first cup of coffee, dress two small children, prepare breakfast, and pack lunches. At some point, my eyes adjust to the light and start to open without hurting.

Thank goodness for Husband, because he is usually helping with all of these things or unloading the dishwasher. We might never have clean dishes if he wasn’t here to handle this … I would probably be all paper plates, all the time.

6:30 We finish up feeding the kids, putting on socks and shoes, brush teeth, apply any necessary lotions, medicines, jackets, hats, Band-aids, etc. I’m not gonna like … Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is also a big part of our morning routine.

7:00 Hugs, kisses, and Husband is out the door to take the kids to day care. And I’m still in my pajamas. Haven’t even brushed my teeth yet. I check a few emails, respond to anything urgent, then brush my teeth. 

Work out, shower, check more emails, get ready for work. Then … work.

At this point, I feel like it should be lunch time already. But it’s not.

It is, however, time for more coffee.

What does your morning look like?
